an everyday lipstick...

I don't know if you guys know this but I have been having a predicament when it comes to my lipstick. I pretty much wanted a lipstick that was the closest colour I could get to my own lips while still being a bit coral-y. I wanted to have a fresh lipped look without it being too colourful. Something I could wear everyday and be easy to maintain, something that would be fresh and pretty. I have no problem with amazing, vibrant colours on a night our special occasion but at work it's just too much hassle to keep it topped up. I also wanted it to be quite moisturising. I don't want my lips cracking with it, which does happen with other lipsticks.

So on Saturday I found this lipstick. Soft coral (#600) from the Rimmel Moisture Range. It has a peachy/coral colour to it, shockingly close to my normal lip colour and is very easy to apply. My only problem with it is that it's quite shimmery... not in a nasty way but I usually like matte lipsticks. But it is definitely something that I can live with. It adds a hint of shine to my lips and keeps them looking full of life without going over board. It's like springtime on my lips... What a lovely idea!

I don't think I'm going to get any better, but it's early days yet...
